Abstract

Badland landforms, created in Plio-Pleistocene clay landscapes of the Basilicata region of southern Italy, form marginal features in a semi-arid landscape dominated by the widespread cultivation of subsidised cereals. These badland features are high relative relief forms exhibiting a high drainage density and steep slopes, with slope angles typically in excess of 35°. The economically-driven change in land use from visually striking badland areas to newly remodelled fields for agricultural use results in an increase in the coupling of drainage networks and a net increase in soil erosion
